For the second consecutive year, Lipper selected the Scout International Fund (UMBWX) as Best International Large-Cap Growth Fund. The award was based on consistent return among 197 funds evaluated on risk-adjusted returns over the three-year period ending December 31, 2010.
"In a field as competitive as International Large-Cap Growth funds, Scout International didn't rest after last year's win - they added to it."
- Jeff Tjornehoj, head of Lipper Americas Research
"Recognition like this simply affirms our selection process. Not every manager wins an award, but they are proven, consistent, and reasonably-priced. It's a good combination and clients enjoy the benefits."
- Dan Danford, CEO of Family Investment Center
